The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 38 – Chuck’s Lull

Poor Chuck Buda. 

As co-host of The Mando Method Podcast, along with fellow co-host Armand Rosamilia, Chuck has plenty of resources at his fingertips. New ways of thinking about writing and working. Lots of inspiration from listeners and talking shop about the craft. 

But he’s been in a funk lately. Listen in as an author does what all authors do… complains and/or whines about not being able to write. 

There’s a lot more to it, so you’ll need to listen. Seriously. 

Then, Erin Sweet Al-Mehairi jumps in to chat about review sites during her Marketing Morsels segment. You don’t want to miss this one. Again… seriously.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 35 – Amazon Descriptions

Amazon Descriptions and Blurbs for Print Books.

Two areas that are tied in together but befuddle even the best of us. Is your description and/or blurb too long? Too short? Just right? Keyword rich or confusing?

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda probably don’t have the right answer but they have some ideas about the things they’ve done and what they’ll do in the future when it comes to Amazon descriptions and print book back cover blurbs.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 27 – Improving The Craft

Improving The Craft. 

Are you feeling stuck in a rut? Using the same words over and over to describe things in your story? Feel like you’re writing the same dialogue and scenes over and over? You’re not alone.

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda have a nice, long chat about expanding their vocabulary, writing and reading out of their comfort zone, and a lot about things that have nothing to do with this week’s topic.
